Just footsteps (14 to be precise!) level walkout from your own private deck to the waters edge on Welcome Beach. Nestled in Halfmoon Bay (equi-distance between the ferry terminal of Langdale in Gibsons and Earls Cove in Egmont and a mere 3 hours from Whistler), Welcome Beach is one of the Sunshine Coasts hidden gems!! Enjoy beach life and the very best that West Coast wildlife has to offer, without even leaving your sun lounger – should you wish. Watch the cruise liners glide past at sunset on balmy Summer evenings and wake up to sea otters and seals froliking in the water in front of you in the mornings and eagles soaring overhead ….. a little piece of heaven on earth.
Waters Edge on Welcome Beach is a newly built 600 sqft, completely self contained and beautifully appointed one bedroom vacation suite/cottage. With its own separate entrance and parking, private deck, fully equipped kitchen and spacious lounge/dining room with ‘picture’ floor to ceiling/wall to wall, patio windows – taking in one of the best views in the world (well, I may be a little biased, but I am not exaggerating – come see for yourself!!). Following through to the separate king sized bedroom (which can be split easily to accommodate twin beds) is the hallway containing a washer and dryer. Off the bedroom is a separate double sized shower room/washroom.
Your view from the suite encompasses the breathtaking, snowcapped mountains of Vancouver Island, just a matter of a few miles across the Georgia Strait on the ‘outer passage’ from Welcome Beach. Also, on the ‘inner passage’ (to your left, looking out from the suite) is Merry Island with the only remaining manned lighthouse on the West Coast and, to the right, the southern point of Thormanby Island (with it’s beautiful white sandy beaches) and the majestic Texada Island rising up behind that.
You will be hard pressed to tear yourself away from the stunning sunsets at night – but, should you manage to, then the pretty ocean front town of Sechelt, with it’s eclectic mix of shops, is a pretty 15 minutes drive away and offers an international array of eateries – some of which we would heartily recommend. Please feel free to ask (especially as food, as prepared by others, is my favourite topic!!).
Waters Edge offers you the chance to switch off, opt out of the ‘mainstream’, relax and simply let life’s cares melt away……
